I had lunch with an old friend whom I have known for more than 20 years. As we grow older, we grow more sentimental, perhaps. After lunch, I decided to walk into a shop selling comics and knick knacks. It is a shop I enjoyed going to frequently in my younger days. Just when I thought there's nothing interesting enough for me to buy, this caught my eyes!
The RubiksCube was first introduced when I was in primary school, I think. See how it has evolved? Amazing! My friend opened his, I scrambled it up and he tried to put it back together again. It is much more difficult compared to the old cube with solid colors.
We have to make sure that the 6 sides each has the correct family of symbols AND the symbols have to be in sequence if numbers are involved (as in the TONG ZI, WAN ZI and TIAO ZI) AND the right side up (this applies to all sides, the other three sides being HONG ZHONG, BAI BAN and FA CAI)! Wah!
A small detail on the packaging caught my eyes too. Why does one say for ages 3 to adult and another, ages 8 to adult? Hmmm... Maybe, I am not smart enough to comprehend this. Made in China, where else? ;p
